Seven Canadian race bikes from “jersey week” in Ontario

Opportunities to earn a championship jersey are rare. National championships, continental championships and world championships each award a jersey that can be worn at international races, but each happen just once a year.

Between Peterborough national championships and Silver Goose Pan-American championships, Canada’s top cyclocross racers have the chance to upgrade their kit at back-to-back race weekends.

Last weekend at Nicholls Oval Park, a new crop of maple leaf jerseys were handed out to the 2019 Canadian cyclocross champions.

This weekend in Midland, Ont., the Silver Goose will hand out the continental champion jerseys at Pan-American cyclocross championships.

Here are some of the fastest bikes from “jersey week” in Canada. From high end carbon fibre to hand made titanium, these are the race whips Canadians are racing as they chase championship titles in Ontario.
